Hosta 'Mississippi Delta'

This cultivar was registered by 0lga Petryszyn of Indiana in 1998 as a cross between H. 'Sea Gold' × H. 'Golden Torch'. A large size (24 inches high) plant with deeply lobed leaves that are downward cupping and have thick substance. The very pale lavender flowers open from mid-June into July followed by viable seeds.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Bob Solberg of Green Hill Farm in North Carolina (1998a) has noticed that, at maturity, 'Mississippi Delta' sometimes produces its many white flowers on branched scapes."

The New Encyclopedia of Hostas by Diana Grenfell (2009) states: "Upper leaf surface soon loses its glaucous coating leaving a rubbery effect, but the best color is maintained if growing in light shade."
